If you can afford it, skip the smaller ones. Here's why...

I bought this grill's first iteration in ca. 1980. It was terrific for smoking whole turkeys and ribs, because you could keep the meat on one side, and the charcoal and wood chips/chunks on the other side (with or without using the charcoal baskets) to get low-temp "oven" cooking.

After years and years of use (until 1997) including taking the legs off and hauling it to Baja for beach barbecuing fresh-caught fish, and driving the heat to insane levels for steaks that basically burned off the wood lid handle and sagged the grate, and not being able to find a replacement, but mostly due to moving to a new home that had a wood deck, for which the old open-pan ash catcher was not safe, I gave it away and bought a 22-incher with composite handles, and the closed-pot ash catcher. I currently use a Performa 22, and an old New Braunfels smoker for slow cooking with one door hinge out of commission, still usable, but hobbling..

I've been looking at Kamados, but I think I'll probably get a Weber 26. For sentimental reasons...like smoking 3-4 slabs of ribs for 5 hours, then quick-searing them directly over charcoal.

The last grill you wil ever need

I have waited almost 6 years before purchasing this grill. It was worth it. I can cook everything from ribs to pies on this grill and it will come out great! Don't be shy about putting your cast iron on this grill. It will only expand your options and will make you love this grill even more!!

Grill or smoke--your choice

The 26.75 is a great size for smoking or grilling. Use the amount of charcoal you need for the cook and you won't go wrong. You don't have to fill up the kettle. I've slow cooked lots of meats (ribs, butts, chickens, beef) and I've grilled lots. Very versatile. Forget the egg thingy, this is the all purpose, real fire cooker for any grilling/barbecuing enthusiast.

Get this and ditch every other grill/smoker!

This grill does it all! I've had a Silver 22.5" for years, but it sometimes came up wanting on size, especially in some smoking applications and when cooking for large groups. But now that I've got the big boy here, I can pretty much do it all! I sold my smoker and my big Oklahoma Joes grill, 'cause this pretty much covers all of my needs. The air control seems to be right on par with my smaller Weber, so no need to worry about an adjustment period on that. Plus, charcoal usage doesn't seem to be all that much different. I still use his little brother for the bulk of my everday grilling, but it's nice to know when size DOES matter, this guy is ready to go!

Gold Series Wonder!

I have owned WEBER charcoal grills for years, portable to 18". Thought this was a lil overkill on size compared to what i was used to..UNTIL..I cooked on it !! WOW !! What a great piece of cooking equipment! I thought i would use a lot more charcoal, but in reality i'm using less because of the charcoal baskets. I love everything about this grill! The one-touch clraning system is the best! I have cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner and it keeps getting better ! My wife bought this for me (really us) for Father's Day...what a great grilling time it has been so far!!

Solid Gold!

Although I've seen them around this is my first Weber. I've had it a few weeks and it's performed very well. I slow cooked two slabs for the 4th of July and grilled sausages, burgers, chicken, and dogs and it performed like a champ. I am pleased with this grill.

(Aw)some!

I picked up this grill for a family party of 40 and this grill was able to keep up with the demand.

One of our guests called the grill a mini - volcano!

Defiantly happy with the quality and how easy it was to clean!

It's a must have!

Thanks Weber!

The only grill you'll ever need

This is my first Weber grill, and after using it a few times I realized how much I can do with this thing.
I have learned how to cook multiple items of different cooking times just by keeping my coals to one side, and with the use of the upper and lower vents. It's a great smoker, I can do a hot or cold smoke depending on how many coals I have lit.
I have even made grilled pizzas on it with much success.
Your only limited by your imagination!
I use a Weber Go-Anywhere for my portable grill, these two are the only grills you'll ever need.
